L.A., Owens Valley settle dispute over dust control

L.A., Owens Valley settle dispute over dust control: The DWP's actions will include fast-tracking mitigation measures that do not use water. Also, a Native American massacre site will be left undisturbed.

Los Angeles and the Owens Valley have reached a settlement in their dispute over new measures to control dust storms that have blown across the eastern Sierra Nevada since L.A. opened an aqueduct a century ago that drained Owens Lake.
